Here's an interesting article that touches on information literacy and the
use of technology and how it applies to learning:,,2103-2136123_1,00.html

Not sure I believe that using e-mail knocks 10 points off our IQ's, but I do
sometimes feel like a digital immigrant and even though I can use my phone
to text and download ring tones, I couldn't figure out the iPod without
help. One neuroscientist predicts that dependence on the screen instead of
books for information will result in people who don't know how to read or
write. But...wouldn't one still need to know how to read in order to read
their google searches and wouldn't one still need to know how to write in
order to text and e-mail?

The article has other interesting points as well.
